Do I write a check and send it back to social security, or does the money stay in account to use?

I thought the rule was that you have to live the entire month to get a payment in the next month. So the payment made in the month of death is for the previous month. If the person lives until after the payment is made, I think they get to keep the payment.

It gets automatically UNdeposited and stopped. SS reads all the death certificates and takes it back.
